Shindig: Are the spark and vodafone ones branded in any way?


I have the Vodafone version and only a couple of apps are preinstalled, both are removable.

Also firmware updates need to come from Voda.

HMM right I see, better to get a non-telco one.
Updates from Samsung directly...

There's not really such a thing as a global, non-branded Samsung device - if they don't have operator-specific software (And all NZ variants will be from either 2d, Vodafone, or Spark stock - we're not a big enough country to have an 'open market' variant like the UK and Australia do), they will still have region-specific software and receive updates in accordance with that region's schedule. Worth checking out the country of origin if purchasing parallel-imported devices, as Singapore, Poland, the Netherlands, and the UK generally receive the fastest updates globally.

Locally, 2d and Vodafone variants generally have very little customisation, while Spark has a little more. While they'll all work on all three networks as the hardware is identical (SM-N910U Octa-Core Exynos), it's still recommended to get the variant for the network you intend to use it on for the sake of APNs and baseband firmware optimisation, et cetera.

Watch out for Noel Leemings... Their website seems to indicate that they still haven't actually got any stock.

They had no qualms about taking my order and telling me that they would have it on release day yet on that day told me it was at least 2 weeks away but that they didn't know when they would get them.

Just sayin'.

Cheers  N

PBTech is the best place I reckon. It would be interesting to know their source
